When things get out of control and you momentarily lose your emotional balance, there are any number of little things you can do to regain it. Here are ten tools to help get you started. 1.
The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year.
When you meet your robot overlord , it may be wearing super-intelligent skin designed by a Stanford researcher --a solar-powered, super-sensitive, chemical-sampling covering that makes your meatbag covering look pathetic. Zhenan Bao is behind the advances, and the recent development centers on a stretchable solar cell system that can expand and shrink along two different axes, making it perfect for incorporation into artificial skin for robots, human prosthetic limbs, or even clothing. Bao's earlier successes with artificial skin have resulted in a highly flexible and durable material, which is part of a flexible organic-chemistry transistor, built on a thin polymer layer. When the skin is subjected to pressure, the current flowing through the transistors is modified as tiny pyramid shapes molded into the polymer layer compress, resulting in a super-sensitive transducer that can apparently detect the pressure from a house-fly's feet.
This is my experimental research in field of art, graphics, math, physics...
Albion Basin, near the ski resort of Alta, Utah is renowned for its abundance of summertime wildflowers, and the area offers several great hiking and biking trails. During this visit I encountered a moose, and briefly considered a career as some sort of wildlife panorama photographer, until I came to my senses and realized that any such career could be short lived. Once the summer wildflowers have passed, autumn hikes offer a calm and peace all their own. - Martin van Hemert

There are approximately two billion children (persons under 18) in the world. However, since Santa does not visit children of Muslim, Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist (except maybe in Japan) religions, this reduces the workload for Christmas night to 15% of the total, or 378 million (according to the population reference bureau). At an average (census) rate of 3.5children per household, that comes to 108 million homes, presuming there is at least one good child in each.
Picture a metal that's so clever it can be blown into a mold like plastic materials, then think of the amazing gadgets that could be crafted from it--things that make Apple's unibody Macs look like child's play. The advance is coming from research at Yale , where scientists have been working on what's called bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) and have perfected the technology to the point it's as useful, potentially, as everyday thermoplastics are today. Metals are essentially crystalline on an atomic level. Their atoms, when in solid state, are arranged in pretty regular arrays, lined up neatly in rows and layers like the carbon atoms in a diamond. Glasses have long, stringy molecules that tangle together when they're liquid, and when they cool to a solid, they retain the tangled stringy structure, just frozen in place (very similar to plastics, just with different molecules).
